Okay good to know with the BIOS. Sould I just try reintsalling the BIOS or make the necessary corrections and see if things return to a normal state?
I noticed this last attempt where it said my RAID was over 2000. So that might have had a little to do with it. But I shortened it to 500 and still got the same reaction from the system.
So I've moved the Opticals to 5 and 6, have my FDD handy for the RAID driver. I'll try it again.
I think that it was the opticals that were blocking everything since they were showing as RAID devices being part of 1-4. Hopefully that's all it was. I went back through the manual and it addresses them in SATA section. Not in RAID section.

you can not install win 7 on a disk that is larger than 2TB.
if your 2 drives in your raid array show large than 2TB win 7 will not set it as a boot drive, just as a data drive.
1 and 3 will work fine for your hard drives
Thanks for the assist Tweeky.
